Unused Graphics

No transparency here!

The copyright information from the title screen on a black background.

Tokyo Game Show Version

White text for the title screen that says "TGS ver.". It was probably used during the Tokyo Game Show.


An unused background that can be seen in a trailer that was included in Sonic Mega Collection. It was later used for the options screen in Sonic Advance 3 albeit with a different palette.

Not having an SRAM chip on the cartridge will unlock everything in the game. This is also the case for the other Sonic Advance games.
